If you’re from Kansas or Missouri, you’ve likely heard of Lambert’s Cafe, home of the “throwed rolls.”
The Sikeston-based restaurant is well-known for tossing their hot, buttery rolls across the room to hungry customers with their hands raised.
It’s usually an entertaining experience, but you know what they say: It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.
And that someone is Troy Tucker, who is suing the Sikeston-based restaurant after being hit in the eye with a roll in September 2014, according to the Riverfront Times.

Tucker is seeking $25,000 to cover medical bills and legal fees after she says she sustained a “lacerated cornea with a vitreous detachment.”
The lawsuit Tucker filed claims her “head, neck and vision were severely damaged” and the restaurant should have known about the dangers of throwing rolls.
Tucker’s lawsuit is not unlike the one Sluggerrr, the Royals’ mascot, won in June against a man who got in hit in the eye with a hot dog thrown by the mascot.
